Bike MS: Arizona 2017

Good Times!
Good Times!

Point B Phoenix

Fun, Fitness and a Very Worthy Cause!

In 2004, several Point B team members shared a personal connection with MS, and the firm began sponsoring the MS Society at various levels. This connection and partnership has grown into the largest sponsorship and volunteer platform for Point B and our clients. The firm supports Bike MS every year in five major cities throughout the U.S. Our local Point B teams are proud to invest their time and passion in Bike MS and the MS organization’s purpose.

We look forward to Bike MS every year because the events are well-run, the rides are memorable, and the atmosphere of the event fosters and renews meaningful relationships like no other. It’s a group effort that transcends personal accomplishment and touches the lives of the thousands of people affected by MS in our community. It’s more than a ride—it’s Bike MS.

Over the years, Point B has raised over $1 million in support of the MS Society. 2016 was the third year for the Phoenix bike team, and we raised over $10,000. This year we looking to do even better!

Friends, clients, family members, and friends we haven't met yet:  We'd love to have you ride or volunteer with us! Join our team! This is a great opportunity to get into biking in a non-competitive, fun environment. If you're not a rider, our great group of volunteers can never have enough help!  Contact me (Bob Brackney) if you're new to biking and would like to try a fun new challenge, or for more information on volunteering!

Even if you don't ride, your support for this great cause is very much appreciated. Every dollar matters in pursuit of our vision of A World Free of MS.

Safety First!

So, exactly how does all this work???   
Here are the basics:

Ride Details.
Date(s):
March 25 & 26, 2017
Start/Finish Location: McDowell Mountain Regional Park
Rider Fundraising Minimum: $250
Rider Age Minimum: 12

Anyone can join the Point B team. For Riders, there is a $50 Bike MS registration fee. This fee increases as the ride gets closer.

Don't ride? We love volunteers! Point B is sponsoring two rest stops, and we have morning and mid-day volunteer shifts at both!  Come out and support our riders - you'll be amazed at how good you'll feel supporting this important cause!

Contact David Bates (dbates@pointb.com) for information on volunteering.

There is a $250 fundraising minimum required for riders to participate in the ride. You can write a check for $250 and be done with it, or you can hit up your friends and family and co-workers to support your efforts! This is a charity ride, and we encourage fundraising. The MS Society awards a super-cool "skull" jersey to riders who exceed $600.

Point B provides Point B team jerseys (to riders) and lots of beverages and snacks at our base camp. We make Bike MS a party!

Bike MS provides lots of drinks and meals (dinner Friday, breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday, breakfast Sunday) support and rest stops along the entire route, a swag bag for every rider, Saturday evening entertainment, and more.

Base Camp is at McDowell Mountain Park near Fountain Hills. There is a central pavillion with vendor tents, team hangout tents, entertainment and food. The Point B camp is nearby, with our tents, gear and goodies.

Some Point B team members camp Friday and/or Saturday, others choose to drive in in the mornings.  The camping vibe is awesome!

We ride Saturday and/or Sunday. Different team members ride different distances, there is no requirement to ride any distance.

We welcome riders of all levels! Most of us are recreational riders, but we have a couple triatheletes too! If you are interested in riding but have never ridden any distance or have not been part of an organized ride, this is a great place to start - we will help you!

Specific routes and distances are under the "About This Ride" tab at the top of this page.

About MS

When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by multiple sclerosis. Symptoms of MS range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
